Baghdad – Mawazine News
An informed source revealed, on Saturday, that the head of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Massoud Barzani, informed the Kurdistan Union Party to submit one candidate for the presidency.

The source said that Barzani told Bafel Talabani to submit one candidate instead of four candidates.

He added that Barzani informed the National Union of withdrawing Barham Salih in exchange for the withdrawal of Hoshyar, the candidate of the Democratic Party.

According to the source, Barzani nominated Latif Rashid for the presidency.

At a time when a member of the Patriotic Union confirmed that Barham Salih is the most likely candidate to occupy the position, a member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party reiterated his refusal to renew Barham Salih, while referring to the candidacy of Hoshyar Zebari on one condition.

A member of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, Giyath Surji, says that Barham Salih is still the most likely candidate for the position of President of the Republic.

He added that Barham Salih is still the most fortunate and most acceptable figure among most political forces to occupy the position, and he is still the only and most likely candidate for nomination from the Union within our electoral entitlement to occupy the position of President of the Republic.

As for the Kurdistan Democratic Party, it renewed its refusal to renew Barham Salih for the presidency of the Iraqi Republic, while referring to the candidacy of Hoshyar Zebari on one condition.

Party member, Mahdi Abdul-Karim, said that if the candidate for the presidency was not in agreement between the two Kurdish parties, and with the approval of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, he would not pass.

He added that Barham Salih is only accepted by the Union Party, and if it is insisted on, the Democrat will nominate Hoshyar Zebari for the presidency. Ended 29 / p. 87
